After nn other protracted parllntncHtary Mrujnste the Democrat of the House to-rlsy stie reedM In senrtlnir the army appropriation bill to conference without permitting a vote on the Kennte provision nuthorUIng a, regular nrtny of SSO.OOO men. Thli achievement whs ucoompllMied by a bit of uraicKy, the recognition of Meyer Tendon, the lone Socialist mem ber from New York, km the minority, and leaving tlio Republican, nlui claimed recognition In that capacity, pruutlcutly without voice In the proix-edlnRH. Meanwhile, the Senate Instructed Its conferees to stand cut for the .Senate, provision for an army of 2.o,ono.

Senator Hitchcock, who stood high on toe committee In seniority of rank, was left off the conference committee because- Of his hostility to the preparedness plan. It Is believed the Sen, He conferees will Tote to a man for the Increase of the regular army to 150, 000. The special rule dovlsed to enable the Democrats to carry out their plans and the parliamentary entanglement which followed provided occasion for a debate on preparedness more spectacular than any that occurred .when the army bill nam originally under consideration. Democrats and a number of Republi cans from the middle West asserted that the regular army was i. sham ; that the standing unity provided by the Scnale bill was a delusion and that the country muni depend on volunteers for Its tit fenco If the necessity should arise. The Herman situation, the possibility of serious developments In Mexico and apparent hostility In middle Western States towur1 anything like militarism eemed to havu resulted In a cliutixe of wntlment In the House with respect to a large standing at my wince the vote taken On the House bill several neeka ago.

Representative Mann, the minority leader, made an Impassioned appeal for the larger army. When hu declared he was not In favor of breaking off diplo matic relations with t'.trniany hu was reeled with an outburst of applause. Mann Come tn Front. "All the older members of the Houte." ha said, "know that for years I have stood here opposing u laige army or a large navy. I do not believe that under normal conditions cither one is essential to our peace or our preservation. I wlh I had the power of expression to mako you see what Is clear In my mind. "We are sitting on top of an earth Uake In Die world. Wu arc the onlv great, rich, powerful country that Is not engaged In war and tlio only on with out a method of defence. We may be come at any time Involved In war through our notions of our rights or because of the cupidity of other nations. I would rather spend a little money now than to spend oceans of American blood later. "I think we ought to prepare for the worst now. 1 want to kiep out of the war: I am opposed even to breaking off diplomatic relations with any of the countries nt war In Kurope. I think wo ought to remain nt peace, to stand even Insult and Injury. Hut there Is a limit beyond 'which no one goes, and while In my opinion wu hae not yet reached that limit and I ImpeVe will bo able to restrain ourselves so that wo will never reach the limit, I am In favor now of preparing men who may be ready and trained to fight If necessary before wo pour out the blood of volunteers, un prepared and untrained." Charge at I.obbrlns. Representatives Lenroot and Long worth said the House should havo an opportunity to strike out of the Senate bill the provision for the erection of a Government nitrate plant, which they said had been urged by ono of the most persistent lobbies that hail ever an firoached Congress. .TeB1.c.!la,Bts "roused Chairman Hay of the Military Affairs Committee, who declared that lie would not accept the Senate nllrato plant provision until he had received further Instructions from the House. , Replying to Mr. Mnnn. he said as to the Benate provision for an army of 250,000 men : "I do not want to put upon the coun try a proposition wWch will not prepare us and whlch'lt Is meant to do in outer to fool the country Into believing that we are doing something to mako prepara tlons when we aru not," "Will these men eomo forth when tho President calls for them?" he at-kert. Han it ever been known In the Ills tory, of thto country that the regular army, when war came was recruited tin to Its limit? AVhat men havo fought the wars of this country? "During tlio civil war did you iev nn the regular army? No. And. gentlemen, If war should be declared to-morrow, or next week, or next month, this legisla. lion would he thrown aside as worth Uas for preparation for that war." Mr. Hay referred to the. fact that sl. weeks ago Congress authorized the re cruiting of 2n,flU0 men. "Wlier., rn they?" he askod. "Where aro those men? How many have been recruited In the last weeks? Just 4,Si!9," Other speakers declared that the pro lioseil army of 250,000 men could not be. lecrulted and tliat It was not rieerleil. "It would take it year for a Kuropeau foicn to attack us," said Representative Anthony of Kansas, "If war should fol low the severance of diplomat!. r. l..tion.

Itepresentatlvc Miller, who made a tour of the Philip pines two years ago as a member of the House Committee on Insular Affairs, said to-day: 'The petition repreents the real views of a large portion of the Filipino people I have long been convinced that the grear mass of the Filipino people have been entirely Ignorant of the Independ ence agitation.

Mirny to Honor Poet's Memory. A meeting cotnmcmoratory of the Shakespearian tercentenary celebration was held last night under the auspices of the Civic Korum In Carnegie Hall. Prominent men and women In many walks of life united to pay tributes to the Bard of Avon as a man, a poet and a dramatist. President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia presided and Introduced among the speakers K. It. Sothem, Julia Marlowe, Alfred Noyes, Mary B. Woolley, president of llolyoke College; Dr. James J. Walsh. William O. Wlllcox. Frank Uiscelles, Kdlth Wynne Matthlsou and filr Herbert Tree. Dr. Butler called Shnkespeare one of the four great racial voices of tho world. "Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe," he said, "are four great epochs which stand out like peaks In the history of letters the Greek, the Uitiu, the Saxon.- the Teuton. To Shakespeare fell the honor to run the whole range of human feeling, human aspiration, human love as no other great artist has ever hoed .to do and to do It In our own language and In our own manner. "Therefore no nre here tn-nlght tn pay honor and tribute to tho memory of a great name. William Shakespeare of 3 nil ears ago Is as oung, real and vital to-day as he was tn the day In which he himself lived." In the address made by Dr. Walsh, who Is professor of physiology at the Cathedral College, considerable merri ment was caused by his reference to the things Shakespeare might have done and his witty discourse on what probably happened to the playwright In hia every day life. Mr. Wlllcox, president of the Board of Education, explained the Influence of Shakespeare on the children of the New York public schools. Frank LascelUw, who wan born within a stone's throw of Shakespeare's church, spoke on "The Home of Shakespeare" and described the changes that have been wrought In the vicinity of the poet's birthplace. AUrH Noyes read two poems com posed by him for the occasion In honor of Shakespeare. Mr. Sothern's brief address was de voted to urging the establishment of Shakespeare stock companies all over tho country which would give perform ances of Shakespeare at moving picture prices so that children and persons of moderate means could have an oppor tunity of hearing his works. "I believe that this would ptove not only a financial success," he said, "but would meet with much popular favor, provided the companies so organized played only Shakespeare." Mlsa Marlowe read a series of Shake spearian poems and recited a short bal. lad. Sir Herbert Tree paid a high tribute to the dramatist, and Mis Mal thlson read severnl sonnets.

An order for 3,000,000 feet of big tim ber Is reported to have been placed by the army for shipment to Columbus and another order of 106 caraflkf lumber placed for shipment to 131 Paso. It Is believed that the big timber Is to be used for platforms and for bridge building below the line as well an for temporary barracks for the soldiers being concentrated In the vicinity of Casas Grandes. ' letters received here to-day from Gua dalajara assert that starving women of the peon class surrounded carts loaded with corn and beans, halted the drlvcm and stashed the sacks Ihat they might take quantities of the grain for their families. Prices of both these staples have risen to figures almost out of reach of hun dreds of the poor class, who aro without work or money. Coin Is quoted at ISO pesos per hectoliter and beans bring a higher price. Notwithstanding this the city Is the centre of the richest agri cultural region of the country, but all farming activity Is stagnant, owing to the revolutionary conditions. Very few of the American mining com panies have been able to continue opera tions. The Amparo mine, the headquar ters of which aro In Philadelphia, Is pro ducing bullion for export and receiving supplies by tie Pacific port of Manza nlllo.

CAN'T FIND MALONEY IN SUIT ABOUT ALTAR Lawyer Tells of Inability to Servo Papers on Oil Man at Office Here. The difficulty of serving a court order on Martin Malnney, wealthy oil man and a Patal Marquis, was related to Supreme Court Justice Delehanty yesterday when counsel for the Mcltrlde Studios, 4 I Park How, asked the court to set a day on which Maloney may bo examined before trial In a suit against him for J15.U00. The suit In based on an alleged agree ment under which the plaintiff was en gaged by Mr. Maloney to build an altar for tho Church of Our Uuly of the Nativity at Scranton, Pa. The order was countermanded after the plaintiff had done part of the work. Attorney Boskey. representing the plaintiff, said that after Supreme Court Justlco Whltaker had refused to vacate an order for the defendant's examination It became Impossible to serve him here. although he has an office at CO Church street, where he is president of the Maloney Oil and Manufacturing Com pany. "Mr. Maloney has'glvcn more altars to 1 Ionian Catholic churches than any other man," said tho attorney. "Ho can do millions of dollars worth of business from his office here and yet we can never find him there to wrvo him with the twurt order." Samuel Xewm.ri, attorney for Mr. Maloney, told tho court that he Is "a very busy man" and that his own attor ney hasn't seen him In this city but once In a year and In order to confer with him must go to the Maloney home at Spring Unko or to Philadelphia. Tho lawyer said he didn't see why Mr. Maloney should bo examined anyhow, because the case Is to como up for trial next week. "It Is true that he has paid for the building of many altars, hut he never contracted fur this particular altar," said the lawer.
